Thanksgiving Basket Donor Sign Up
This program assists under-resourced families from our community. We help by providing them with all of the ingredients needed to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. If you would like to help, please complete the donor sign-up below by November 8 so that we can estimate how many families we will be able to provide for.
The suggested basket contents are listed below but feel free to add a card, note, or other food items that you feel would benefit the family. Baskets need to be returned to the Township Center by November 20. (The Township will be closed November 11 in honor of Veterans Day. No one will be available to accept your donations.)
Suggested Basket Contents:
|Canned Vegetable (up to 4 cans)||Instant Mashed Potatoes (1 large box)|
|Chicken Broth (2 cans)||Jell-O (2 boxes)|
|Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate||Piecrust Mix and Pie Filling (1 can)|
|Cranberry Sauce (1 can)||Stuffing Mix (1 bag)|
|Cream of Mushroom Soup (1 can)||Sweet Potatoes (1 large can)|
|Dessert Mix (2 boxes cake or brownie mix)||Turkey Gravy (2 cans)|

- If you have questions, please contact the Township at 847-358-6700.
- Please note that everything in the basket should be non-perishable. No frozen turkeys accepted. A large laundry basket works great to package your donation!
- A $25 grocery store gift card would be appreciated. A gift card enables families to purchase a turkey and other perishable items for their meal.
- Thank you for your generosity.
